Johan Santana's second minor league rehab start will be pushed back one day, to Thursday, because he wasn't feeling strong enough following a bullpen session on Monday.
"He came back and didn't feel quite as strong as he would've liked," said [Sandy] Alderson. "So rather than force it, we backed it off a day, and we'll see how he feels (today). I don't view that as a setback necessarily. I think it's a tweak in the schedule. We'll know (today) if it's anything more significant."Injury Updates:
Ike Davis has been running this week. By the end of the week, the Mets will decide whether the first baseman will have season-ending surgery to repair his left ankle.
Taylor Buchholz, who has been out since May 30 with depression and anxiety, is most likely not returning to the team this season.
